Middle-earth Returns in New Trailer for Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power

As promised, Amazon’ Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power has dropped a new trailer, and it gives us a good look at the Second Age of Middle-earth, complete with the thriving cities of Numenor and Dwarrowdelf.

Watch this:

Though Galadriel is more of a supporting character in the original trilogy, it looks like she’s going to be taking a more major role in this prequel—alongside Lord Elrond.

I also didn’t expect the harfoots (pre-hobbits) to have that huge of a role in the story, but it looks like they’ll be going on their own adventure too—not too different from the likes of Sam and Frodo in the Third Age.

One character that we’ve yet to get a look at is Sauron, who is supposed to be in the center of the making of these Rings of Power. Since he’s known to have used a different form when he seduced the elves, I’m sure the series is holding out the big reveal of his alter-ego, Annatar.

Here’s the official series description:

Amazon Prime Video’s The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power brings to screens for the very first time the heroic legends of the fabled Second Age of Middle-earth’s history. This epic drama is set thousands of years before the events of J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings, and will take viewers back to an era in which great powers were forged, kingdoms rose to glory and fell to ruin, unlikely heroes were tested, hope hung by the finest of threads, and the greatest villain that ever flowed from Tolkien’s pen threatened to cover all the world in darkness.

Beginning in a time of relative peace, the series follows an ensemble cast of characters, both familiar and new, as they confront the long-feared re-emergence of evil to Middle-earth. From the darkest depths of the Misty Mountains, to the majestic forests of the elf-capital of Lindon, to the breathtaking island kingdom of Númenor, to the furthest reaches of the map, these kingdoms and characters will carve out legacies that live on long after they are gone.

The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power premieres on Amazon Prime Video on Sept. 2.
